Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

To Succeed With Honour

the will to honour win
to succeed with honour
to sacrifice for honour

is worth in excess
of 24 carat gold
an attitude not to be sold

    This is fine if you think that way, but it is good to metion here that countless silly and wild things man has done in the name of honour and after all honour solely can`t put food on the table or give you a happy life. Don`t take this wrong; I think that a certain amount of i is good, but at times some people take the meaning of it too far.

    You did as well as expected given the subjet matter, and the poem or try does not come out that bad. I like it to some levels and a couple lines took my attention for being poetic.

    Keep on wrting and read, and read.

    By the way, check me out on Amazon. com for my book One Hundred Sonnets, Book One.Type the name of the book, or my name: Luis Estable and you will see.

    The best to you now! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
